Volunteer In Argentina
From the cold and blustery Patagonia in the south to grasslands, snow-covered mountains, waterfalls, and impressive metropolises like Buenos Aires and Cordoba in the north, Argentina offers a plethora of attractions. It is also made up of almost the entire southern half of South America, covering an area of just under three million square kilometers. The people of Argentina are as interesting as the country itself. The population is a mixture of diverse national and ethnic groups, with descendants of Italian and Spanish immigrants most predominant. The economy of Argentina is showing positive signs of growth after years high inflation and devaluation of the currency experienced a decade back.
New Hope's projects in Argentina take place in the city of Cordoba, which lies at the heart of Pampas region. Our projects are all local initiatives and through our volunteers, we aim to give hope to the underprivileged and achieve the goals of our projects quickly. Come and join our Argentina program and visit the wonderful country while helping the needy!
Argentina Volunteer Programs
New Hope Volunteer programs start on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month.
In recent years, volunteering has become more of a business than charity. Many organizations in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand run volunteering programs solely for profit. Please check Travellers Quest volunteer abroad in Argentina page for different organizations and their fees and you'll know for sure. But this is not the case with New Hope Volunteers. Our aim is to offer World’s Most Affordable volunteer program (without compromising the quality) so that all volunteers, irrespective of their income level, can volunteer to serve humanity and enrich their life. We hope to make the dreams of college students and budget travelers come true. In our program, except our registration fee of $279,which we need to advertise, cover office expense and pay salary, volunteers pay their money directly to the projects and for your accommodation. This ensures that 100% of your money goes to the project.In addition to our registration fee of $279, here you find the world’s most affordable weekly program fee, which includes room, food (3 times a day), project details and field support.
